How Rodents, Pigeons and Other Wildlife Can Affect Your
Rodents, pigeons and other wildlife can have harmful effects upon
your health, your family's health as well as cause damage to your
home. It is important to fully understand the dangers stemming from
these types of infestations. Below is a more detailed overview of
the health risks associated with particular rodents and birds and
how Arrow's Nashville and Knoxville rodent and bird control team
can help you overcome these risks.
Rodent Control: Mice & Rat Control
Rodents (such as mice, rats, chipmunks and squirrels) can enter a
home through almost any opening or crack. It is important to
inspect for mice droppings, especially in undisturbed areas such as
pantries, under baseboards, in attics and along walls. Rodent
droppings most often cause allergic reactions in human beings but
can also cause disease, including the potentially deadly
Hantavirus. More frequently, though, rodents serve as vectors,
carrying bacteria, such as salmonella, on their bodies and
contaminating food sources, kitchen surfaces and equipment. Arrow's
trained Tennessee mouse and rodent control professionals can offer
the expertise and knowledge of rat and mouse extermination to
best protect your health and rid your home of a rodent
Pigeon & Bird Control
Pigeons are filthy birds and carry many other pests on them, such
as fleas, ticks and mites, which pose their own health dangers to
the public, including lime disease. Pigeons themselves are known to
carry several diseases and can contaminate food, causing salmonella
poisoning. Arrow's trained Knoxville and Nashville pigeon and bird
control specialists have the expertise and equipment necessary to
rid your property of these creatures. We can not only safely
eliminate the pigeons but can also help determine where and why
these animals are infiltrating your property and how to eliminate
the conducive conditions to prevent future problems.
